                  draft-han-tsvwg-enhanced-diffserv-00

Abstract

   There are real-time applications requiring deterministic services in
   terms of bandwidth and latency in various industries, such as network
   based AR/VR (Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality), industrial
   internet.  This document proposes a solution which enhances DiffServ
   in IPv6 to provide end to end bandwidth guaranteed service and
   latency guaranteed service.

1.  Introduction

   [RFC8557][RFC8578] identifies some use cases from different
   industries which have a common need for "deterministic flows".  Such
   flows require guaranteed bandwidth and bounded latency.

   This document proposes to use in-band signaling together with
   DiffServ to provide Latency Guaranteed Service and Bandwidth
   Guaranteed Service.  Network traffic is classified according to
   application requirements and resources such as bandwidth and buffer
   are dedicated to provide a reliable and scalable service, while
   unused reserved resources could be used by best effort traffic.

   The solution is compatible with existing Quality-of-Service (QoS)
   mechanism as long as there is enough network resources, and is not
   restricted to network topologies.  Resource Reservation is done by
